Attitude Sale and Self Control
Hey there, Internet!
While I am trying to save up and said I would not spend anything on clothing before I am back to a weight that I am happy with (Not saying I am fat, just not in that shape that I had some time ago and that I want to get back to. Also no body shaming but everyone has that weight / shape they feel best in and for me and my own body it is definitely less than these days.) Whatever, I promised myself that if I happen to get into that shopping mood it would be accessories. I failed. I failed due to attitude UKs winter sale. Be warned, it is still running these days.
Well, at least 3 of the 5 products were indeed accessories and also 3 of these items were on my wishlists for a while as well…
Even though there are some good online stores in Germany I have attitudes webshop (As well as some US and Australian stores) in my favourites and on a regular basis I regret to be subscribed to their newsletter. Oh you sweet sinful sale and new release mails. Order was placed January, 26nd and paid via Paypal. As always arrived within a week and this time no DHL troubles, perfect!
Killstar Deep Sleep Coffin Ring – 11.77GBP
I was not sure sizewise because I am used to the sizes in mm but since my fingers vary from 14 to 21 I just picked a random size (Q) which works perfectly fine for my right middle finger (at least today, like for many women my fingers get swollen in hot weather or depending on hormones as well). Made from stainless steel so here is hope that my fingers won’t turn green. Love the little detail, that you can open the coffin.
Heartless Spike Harness – 11.76GBP
Well, you can easily create harnesses yourself so I refuse to pay as much as some of them are. Would do some myself but currently no time for that, still this one was a bargain so had to buy!
Bullet 69 Double Chain Ring Leather Belt – 38.83GBP
Ehm, this was one of those things that I put into my shopping carts a million times, did the same with similar belts before and always was frustrated when they sold out before I actually purchased one. Quite expensive and I probably should have ordered in L or XL because the M I got does fit quite well but I prefer accessory belts to be somewhat oversized.
Folter RIP Leggings – 20.60GBP
The one mistake I did in this order. I do like the way it looks but size L is a bit short on my legs (like 7/8 length) and does not cover my entire booty. I guess I can fix both with some cuts or if not I can always turn them into some kind of stockings. Will wait a while with both of that because maybe it will be better when I am back to my normal weight! (one item more or less on that pile of clothing does not matter)
Kreepsville 666 Nevermore Striped Mini Skirt – 15.30GBP
I think I have all different sizes of Kreepsville mini skirts and they all fit in a way or another, this is a bit loose fitting sie XXL but with a pair of leggings and a garter slip underneath it will be fine and one of those things that could be worn to some all you can eat event. (sorry)
So yes, overall happy. Even though I was not as good with my self control / self set goals at least I managed to do 50/50 and sticked to my used to 5-item mini haul habit. Bad thing was that my wishlist now has a few more things on it that were out of stock so maybe this year will make me order a bit from attitude again… Yes, it seems my self control shopping wise is not the best these days. May I blame the stress level of the past 6 months? Please?
How about your own saving goals, staying strong or are you a sale victim as well? Have a nice evening!
